Chris Van Allsburg Discussion

I chose this piece because I really liked the lighting in this illustration. The caption that comes with this is:

“His heart was pounding. He was sure he had seen the doorknob turn.”

This light, which is coming through the window is leading the reader’s eye to the door. This along with the fact that the rest of the room is dark really illustrates the erie feel of the door.

What’s behind the door?! We will never know…
